For Nokias 1st touch screen mobile, its not bad at all. However there is room for loads of improvement.
The Good -
- Comes with an 8GB Micro SD Card for all your music.
- Contacts bar on your main background for 4 of your favorite contacts.
- A proximity sensor that turns the screen off when you make calls so your cheek doesn't press any buttons
- A standard 3.5mm headphone jack for you to plug your normal headphones into to listen to the music.
- Create and customize your own themes and profiles.
- Good selection of small applications (voice recorder, calender, calculator, converter etc).
- Works well as an MP3 player once you get all your music organised.
- Very impressed with the radio and the phones loudspeaker ability. Using two speakers on the back, its very loud!
The Bad -
- The Battery life. *sigh* Its TERRIBLE! I swear I lost one battery bar just by making a call. Surely the folks at Nokia knew they were making a phone that uses a lot of power (touch screen, mp3 player, Internet, radio, loud speaker etc etc) so why didnt they invest in a better battery
-The touch screen. If this phone is going to be your first touch screen device then you probably wont have any complaints. However, if you have an iTouch or have tried out the iPhone, you will be very disappointed. It is in no way near as responsive as the iPhone. I find myself pushing down on the screen to get what I want with the 5800, yet all it takes is a tap with the iPhone.
-The camera. This one doesn't bug me as I don't take any pictures or videos with my phone, but I can see how it would annoy some of you. The camera is capable...and nothing more. Not one thing stands out with it.
- The music synchronization software provided. Its awful. Thankfully I found out you can just use good old Windows Media Player to sync all your tunes to it.
Overall - 4 Stars. It impresses but needs some big improvements to the battery and touch screen.
Hope this helps!
